Eight extremely embarrassing E3 moments

On gaming's biggest stage, these eight figures fell on their faces. Check out these eight extremely embarrassing E3 moments!

7- Nintendo Shows off Virtual Boy (1995)


Poor Gunpei Yokoi. The creator of the acclaimed Metroid series, as well as the Game Boy hardware, had but one serious misstep during his tenure at Nintendo. That mistake was the Virtual Boy, Nintendo's ill-conceived virtual reality console that gave gamers headaches and gave Nintendo its first and only console flop. At E3 1995, Yokoi was on the show floor demoing the soon-to-be-discontinued system, with the product and its producer being all but ignored while the attendees focused on the Nintendo 64. He left Nintendo the next year, and he died in a tragic accident a year later.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
